Monday, August 29, 2016:  In Silvan Australia, the Tromp family inexplicably fled their farm and seemed as if they disappeared off the face of the planet. People along with detectives were baffled as to why the Tromp family  ran away from their family home. Mark and Jacoba Tromp were parents to their three adult children: Riana Tromp (age 29), Mitchell Tromp (age 25), and Ella Tromp (age 22). The parents ran an earth moving business along with a berry farm, where all of their children worked 7 days a week. When police investigated their home, they found mobile phones, passports, and credit cards. The family’s “trip” seemed to be cash only and totally “off the grid.” The family left in Ella’s car and drove for the first day and night until they reached Bathurst, which was roughly 500 miles away from Silvan.

Unlike the rest of his family, 25 year old Mitchell brought his cell phone. However, roughly 19 miles into their trip, his parents forced him to throw his phone out the window because they were convinced that it was being used to track them. The next day (August 3oth) , Mitchell left the family around 7am, while the other members left out towards the Jenolan Caves.   At the Jenolan Caves, Ella and Riana broke off from the family by stealing a car. They drove the car to Goulburn where they reported their parents as “missing.” The strange thing was that from there, the sisters split up. Riana was found in the back of a local’s truck, and the man discovered her while he was driving. He felt a kick and soon after called the police. Riana was catatonic and did not know her name or location. Ella actually made it home Tuesday night and by then, the police were already there. The police investigated the house and found it to be unorganized.
